YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS

THERE'S A YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS THAT I AM GOING TO SEE
NO OTHER FELLOW LOVES HER NOBODY ONLY ME
SHE CRIED SO WHEN I LEFT HER IT NEARLY BROKE MY HEART
AND IF I EVER FIND HER WE NEVER MORE WILL PART.

SHE'S THE SWEETEST ROSE OF COLOR THIS FELLOW EVER KNEW
HER EYES ARE BRIGHT AS DIAMONDS, THEY SPARKLE LIKE THE DEW
YOU MAY TALK ABOUT YOUR DEAREST MAY AND SING OF ROSALEE
BUT THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS BEATS THE BELLES OF TENNESSEE.

WHERE THE RIO GRANDE IS FLOWING AND THE STARRY SKIES ARE BRIGHT
SHE WALKS ALONG THE RIVER IN THE QUIET SUMMER NIGHT
SHE THINKS IF I REMEMBER WHEN WE PARTED LONG AGO
I PROMISED TO COME BACK AGAIN AND NOT TO LEAVE HER SO.

OH NOW I'M GOING TO FIND HER FOR MY HEART IS FULL OF WOE
AND WE'LL SING THE SONG TOGETHER THAT WE SANG SO LONG AGO
WE'LL PLY THE BANJO GAILY AND WE'LL SING THE SONGS OF YORE
AND THE YELLOW ROSE OF TEXAS SHALL BE MINE FOREVER MORE.
